  • Amazing Once in a lifetime vacation and home!

    "Fantastic. This house was all that promised and more. We were a group of 15, 13 adults and 2 small kids. It was also 5 separate families, so a very diverse group of friends. The house being 4 floors offered tons of privacy when we wanted it, but also was large enough to accommodate all of us at the table on the 3rd floor for all of our meals. We made full use of the whole house and the amenities provided. Shiona was a dream to work with. She scheduled all of our activities with groups that were not only professional but also very safe. We never once felt like we were with someone who we couldn't trust completely. The house has Lucy the housekeeper who we all felt so comfortable with, and she was there all the time, but you rarely saw her. She did laundry every day even though its only promised twice a week. She handled any thing we ran short of, constantly refilled coffee and sugar, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. It was a full service experience. (I didnt want to come home) The house location is right next to a great supermarket, with amazingly friendly staff. We were able to fully cook a traditional thanksgiving meal with everything they had in the store. We watched monkeys from the Tub on the roof most days. Our trips included off the beaten path, canyoning, ziplining, mangrove tour, and National Park tour. The only bad thing I can say is that the mangroves dont have as much wildlife as you might expect. We had hoped to see monkeys and sloths but they dont have much of either due to the particular climate and the daily change it has occuring. But all of our tours came with shuttle service, and usually a meal. We all loved the traditional Costa Rican food. We also never required renting a car since we had shuttles and tour pick ups everywhere we wanted to go. And walked to town for anything else. As an FYI, this home does not have DVD players and only 2 TVs. We didnt mind since we didnt plan on using them much, but the kids were a little disappointed at first. (It was good for them to go without though) All in all a great experience and we would use this company again in a heart beat for a return trip to Costa Rica."

  • Great House, Fantastic Owners & Tour Planners!

    "The house is beautiful! Set in the natural surroundings, it is in a quiet and remote location, perfect for getting away. It would have been very difficult to find on our own, so we definitely recommend having a shuttle or taxi driver show you the way. There were plenty of bedrooms for our family of 6, everything was clean and neat and the kitchen was well stocked for cooking. Air conditioning cooled the rooms quickly at night and the ceiling fans kept the rooms comfortable during the day. The pool was a great place to hang out and relax. What made our vacation fabulous however were the owners of this house, Bob & Lori. Before we arrived Lori reached out to us and helped us plan all of our transportation to and from the airport, all of our outings and adventures, a personal chef to cook for our family 2 nights, and even grocery delivery of the items we requested. Bob met us at the house upon our arrival and gave us all the details we needed, as well as his personal contact information to reach out should anything come up (we did contact him twice with minor questions and both times he responded immediately). Every evening we received an email from Lori outlining our arrangements for the next day, as well as tips on what to bring and what to expect. All of the tours and experiences she recommended were top notch with fabulous guides and food. We had an extremely relaxing trip (which is not always possible when traveling with 4 children), and got to explore a lot of the surrounding natural area. We would definitely recommend renting any property from Bob & Lori, and renting this home for its spectacular views and amenities! Thanks so much for a great week!"

  • Our stay was incredible!

    "The description was spot on. If you're looking for all-inclusive resort style stays, this place is not for you. If you are looking for a truly once in a lifetime stay with your personal, very own house in the jungle, this is your spot. You arrive and are greeted by the caretaker Bismarck, his family and his 3 awesome perritos. Your stay in paradise comes with a daily workout of 121 steps straight up the side of the mountain to reach a house with the most incredible view of both playa espadilla and biesanz, 180 degrees of pure magnificence. The house is equipped with all the essentials, this does not include a tv, grab a book or play one of the many games in the house. No alarm clock necessary, the monkeys have you covered, I guarantee you see them almost daily and hear them on your roof! We could not have been more pleased with the location, 10 minute walk from two separate beaches and a 10 minute walk up to numerous restaurants! Julie the owner was also very kind and actually gave us a free upgrade when the larger house was open! Bismarck is incredibly attentive and will take care of any of your needs, you just have to ask. He asked daily if we needed anything or wanted the house cleaned, but we were in the house so little, it was truly unnecessary but nonetheless, his care for you is incredible! We hope you love it as much as we did and Pura Vida!"

  • What a wonderful, fun filled and delightfully elegant home to stay for 10 of us, including 2 kids.

    "We were treated with a very high level of care and concern. Our manager (Alex) was most responsive to calls, emails, requests for cabs and trip/tours etc and always available to us. He provided us an excellent group of drivers and helpful places to shop and sight see. He was very knowledgeable of the area and resources. I would recommend him highly, in fact, only book a home that he is responsible for. Our maid (Dessi) also needs to be commended for keeping the place so neat, tidy, clean and she was very friendly. The animal towels were also a big hit. Thanks to you all, for a great vacation and wonderful holiday, we can not thank you enough."
